Love Itself: My Year Without Roger | Chaz's Blog | Roger Ebert →
What I suppose I’m most grateful for in this year since my beloved husband left us is that I have no regrets. How could I when I was married to a man who called me his “angel. ” And how could I begrudge his flying free from the shell that had grown too small to contain his spirit. He is free. He has merged with the universal love and oneness from which it is said we were all derived.
If I had a gift to the world, it would be that every man, woman and child experience true, transcendent love. I know that I did.
Chaz’s reflections on the past year without Ebert are fucking beautiful. just fucking perfect.
my partner in crime Matt and I are back with another razorcake self-reflection funtime podcast! recorded on V-Day so we’re extra jaded, there’s talk of masturbation, phone sex, and other nonsense in between excellent punk tunes. also Matt’s intro is brilliant (because duh) so read on!
“You’re bound to get idears if you go thinkin’ about stuff.”
This podcast was recorded on Valentine’s Day, which is a holiday that’s more pointless than Easter. A good holiday is one that resurrects the past and inserts it into the present. Remembrance can be a revolutionary action. The resurrection of the history of the oppressed (or suppressed history) is the foundation of political progress. This is what should fill our calendars; not fucking plush teddy bears holding a plastic heart full of jelly beans. I’d like to elaborate on this and tie it in with music, but I have records that need listening to. Anyway, I’ll say this: when I’m angry I like to listen to music. It allows me to wag my mind finger at strawmen. It’s the aloe on the sunburn of existence. Jeez, I need to sleep.
So, goodbye valentine, goodbye guilt, goodbye god, and goodbye Alaska.

#the future of the internet
As a service, Facebook is inspiring, as a platform, Facebook is scary.
That company now controls one of the most exciting technologies of the past fifty years. A truly revolutionary product that has re-ignited a dream many felt was all but dead and gone. What it will do with that technology is the only question that remains. I submit that history is an excellent teacher.
Facebook’s purchase of Oculus and their interest in virtual reality as the next internet platform is just scary enough to be real. Joshua Topolsky knows the future, you guys!
